underdog's picture

The absolutely bonkers Thai melodrama-Western Tears of the Black Tiger, finally out in a legit DVD release after a few years of bootlegs, "has a tendency to overextend its outrageous arias," noted Sean Axmaker in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, "but this pop-art confection both spoofs and celebrates the crazy conventions of movie melodramas and genre cinema with pure affection."

It's a "a delightfully unabashed affair, conceived in such good, giddy spirits it might have been called Blissfully Yours," adds Nathan Lee of the Village Voice.
